Allied Credit Solutions, LLC was founded by experts with years of corporate finance, business development, and transactional law experience to bring consumers credit solutions. Offering services in credit repair, collection removal, identity theft, consumer credit monitoring, auto lending, and the basis of our review – debt settlement and management services, they provide solutions to restore credit and get clients on the road to financial success.
Allied Credit Solutions offers consumers a broad-spectrum of services including credit repair, collection removal, identity theft, credit monitoring, auto lending and other franchise opportunities. Among their product offering they include debt settlement and within this review we’ll cover as much information about the program as possible.
First, consumers are encouraged to take advantage of a free consultation to determine whether the settlement program will be suitable for their unique financial needs. Once clients enroll into the settlement program, they will make monthly payments in which service fees and creditors will be paid upon successful negotiation of a settled debt. Typically clients are required to set up a trust or escrow account where the company requires a predetermined monthly amount to be set aside in order to accumulate enough funds to begin the negotiation process. Unfortunately, we were unable to determine if this is the policy with this company.
ACS claims to have a “No-results, No-charge” guarantee, although under strict FTC regulation, companies enrolling consumers into a debt settlement program must adhere to operating on a performance-based model – meaning if they are unable to negotiate a debt, they don’t get paid. This rule was implemented in 2010 as a result of companies luring in consumers facing economic hardship, charging upfront, enrollment, or monthly fees, while doing nothing to negotiate and settle debts in a professional and timely manner.
Along with their free consultation, Allied Credit Solutions offers military discounts.
Allied Credit Solutions also offers:
- “No Results, No Charge” guarantee
- Free consultation
- Customer testimonials
We have more than one concern when it comes to this company, starting with the ‘F’ rating with the BBB, which could be a negative sign for many potential clients. A consumer enrolled in a credit program requesting to get information wrongfully added to their credit report removed. After six months and no results, their clients requested a refund but were denied that $1,500 request from the CEO. After the report was filed, the company failed to respond, which rendered them the lowest rating.
In addition to the poor BBB review, we’re concerned with their debt settlement program policy and process. There is very little information on the website concerning debt settlement, with most of the information being on their other product offerings. Because we were unable to get in touch with the individual handling debt settlement, we are unable to provide a clear assessment of whether it’s beneficial to consumers.
ACS does little to offer educational resources and tools to consumers and clients and their lack of pricing or communication regarding such also concerns us.
They are not AFCC or IAPDA Accredited. AFCC and IAPDA affiliation isn’t a necessary part of a capable debt relief company, but it is a good way of further establishing credibility and ability to serve customers.
Pricing will vary depending on each specific situation.
Allied Credit Solutions does offer a free consultation which can be set up either by calling into their main customer service line or by filling out a form on their website to be contacted by a representative at a later date and time.
Time in Business
Allied Credit Solutions was founded in 2007 and has been in business for 8 years.
Allied Credit Solutions has an F BBB rating. There has been one complaint in the last year which has also been resolved by the company. The BBB issued this rating because of “concerns with the industry in which this business operates” as well as “length of time business has been operating”.
Allied Credit Solutions is built around the concept of educating people on what kinds of behavior can harm their credit, who looks at their credit and how to improve their credit now and in the future. They offer insight and instruction during any of their services on how to avoid financial situations that will harm a person’s credit rating and what can be done to repair credit once the damage has occurred. They also provide a lot of information just on their website as to some of the basic laws regarding credit repair, their typical process for improving people’s credit, debt relief services and what the average client can expect as a result of the efforts.
Money-Back Guarantee / Cancellation Policy
You can discontinue service with them at any time during the debt settlement process. If you decide to cancel, you will be able to keep the funds you’ve accumulated in your designated bank account.
Unsecured vs. Secured Loans
Allied Credit Solutions handles unsecured loans, though they may give advice and direction on how to better manage secured loans to keep faulty payments and high interest rates from harming credit further.
The website is not mobile friendly and they do not have a mobile app.
